Maui Roadside Attraction

 We just returned from a week in Maui - and guess what I found! Another roadside attraction to add to my collection!

Here are the front and back photos of a giant whale, probably made of concrete. It's located in a park on the main drag in the town of Kihei, on the southern coast of Maui.

Humpback whales spend the winter in Maui and hang out in the channel waters between Maui and Lanai. They have babies in the Hawaiian waters and then return north to Alaska.

Here's a link to the Island Marine Institute for more info on the humpbacks:

We had a very nice trip and I'll post some more photos later.
